How to retain calling party's caller ID on a call foward in asterisk
Posted on 2010-08-17
With a Cisco 7940 running SIP and the CFwdALL button is used, the calling party's caller ID information is retained through the call and ends up at the destination. I'm trying to do a call forward in Asterisk that simulates this but the problem I have is that Asterisk requires a valid callerID number to make the outbound dial; it won't process the call through the system with the received caller ID "originating" the call.
What is it about a Cisco and its SIP Response 302 "Moved Temporarily" that enables an outbound call to be made? Can that be simulated in the dialplan without a Cisco phone in the middle?
